in Montville, is proud to open its 85th Anniversary Season with the hilarious comedy farce "NOISES OFF." Performances will be on Sept. 7, 15, 21, 22, 28 and 29 at 8 p.m. and on Sept. 8, 9, 16 and 23 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $18 (senior/student tickets are $16 on matinees only).
Written by Michael Frayn, The Barn Theatre's production of "NOISES OFF" is directed by Tom Blewitt and tells the story of the on- and off-stage antics of a touring theater company as it stumbles through the final rehearsal of "Nothing On," a typical sex farce, as it runs headlong into its disastrous opening night. Saddled with a demanding leading lady, vain leading man, ditzy ingénue and a drunken has-been, it’s a wonder the director can get anything done if not for his tireless stage manager. But the real show is going on backstage, where every exit from the stage is an entrance into a comedy of errors and every slamming door has everyone one step closer to becoming unhinged!
Please note that "NOISES OFF" contains language which may not be suitable for all audiences.

Perez (of Cliffside Park), David Romankow (of Gillette), Doug McLaughlin (of Hillsborough), Erin Comer (of Woodland Park), Jessica Prekel (of Hackensack), Nick Wolf (of Stockholm), Sarah Pollara (of Morristown) and William Horwitz (of Oak Ridge).
